— book description —

Moving human civilization to the stars.

Book author Michio Kaku PhD traverses the frontiers of astro-physics, computing artificial intelligence, and technology to offer a stunning vision of humanity’s future in space — settling the planet Mars and traveling to distant galaxies.

Not just science fiction: moving human civilization to the stars is becoming a scientific possibility — and a necessity. Whether in the near future due to climate change and the depletion of our planet limited resources, or in the distant future due to catastrophic events, we must face the reality that humans will one day need to leave Earth to survive.

World renowned physicist and futurist Michio Kaku PhD explores in rich detail how humanity will gradually move away from the planet — and develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He shows how developments in robotics, nano-technology, and bio-technology may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars. He then takes us beyond the solar system to nearby stars, that may soon be reached by nano-ships traveling on laser beams at almost the speed of light.

Finally, he brings us beyond our galaxy, and even beyond our universe, to the possibility of immortality, showing us how humans may someday be able to leave our bodies entirely and laser port to new havens in space. With enthusiasm and wonder, author Michio Kaku PhD takes readers on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity will fulfill its destiny among the stars.
